i love the rivoli: i have been coming here for a long time and it is never disappointing especially when you can sit on the patio and people watch ... the food is quite good for the price.

More than a hipster resto, The Riv is actually a hipster activity place. You may even note an occasional smile. Nosh on eclectic food in surroundings of local art or claustrophobic booth, imbibe at the bar or stretch out your legs on its never empty street patio. Upstairs is a pool hall and live performance space. Bump and Hustle parties get groovy and sweaty. Rumour has it Feist waitressed...
